We’ve joined forces with Conservation International, which works in 30 countries around the world to protect the critical benefits that nature provides to people. And together, we’re working to restore the beauty of our planet through the Dove Forest Restoration Project. To help tackle climate change, we will protect and restore 20,000 hectares (an area approximately double the size of Paris and the equivalent of +3 million trees) of forest in North Sumatra, Indonesia, over the next five years.
Our mission forms part of an industry-leading initiative from the Unilever Climate & Nature Fund – a €1bn commitment to regenerate nature and take meaningful and decisive action. This project is also the first step in Unilever’s commitment to help protect and regenerate 1.5 million hectares of land, forest and oceans by 2030 – more land than is required to grow the renewable ingredients in Unilever’s beauty and personal care products.
“When a brand like Dove puts climate change and nature at the heart of its purpose, the impact is game-changing. Together, Dove, Conservation International and Indonesia’s leadership will build on the work we have started with Unilever to protect and restore this region, its wildlife, and support its communities. I look forward to continuing to create conservation success together in Indonesia. Investments like the Dove Forest Restoration Project are essential to changing the trajectory of the planet for the next generation.” - Notes M. Sanjayan, CEO of Conservation International.
